no back light
This is a 24 v thermostat. If your baseboard is line voltage (240v) this wont work without a relay
Not sure about Nest.....think Nest is a Programmable Thermostat. This thermostat is a Non Programmable thermostat, however, Honeywell has one similar that is Programmable for a few extra dollars. I chose Non Programmable as I like to turn the thermostat on and off at random myself, and not automatically.
Have an electrian check it .. It adds peace of mind ..

Pretty much the difference is the non programmable will not change temps automatically. In my opinion programmables become the source of nuisance service call more than save energy in many cases. I have had to charge people for a trip and time just to change a setting, they can save some on forced air heat in most cases. Not usually so practical for radiant heat and air conditioning depending on the circumstances.but pretty much all; r=pwr+ c=pwr- w=heat g=fan y=a/c b/o=reversing valve (heat pumps)
No backlight. Home Depot has NOT advertised this correctly. Only in the features section will you see it has NO BACKLIGHT like some other thermostats. I brought this to the attention of Home Depot over 3 years ago and it disappoints me that they still have not corrected the title!
Hi WC No there is no back light for the panel, you would need a flashlight to see the whole panel and the numbers to adjust the temps ...
Just press the keys its digitial .. You will see the temps ... Put it to the number you want it and thats it .. The ac will maintain that temp you picked ... I keep mine at 75 and its just right .. I have a 1 bdr. Condo ..
